Stadium sites

Google Maps image with data

This shows the results of the ABC Committee research.

I also found this interesting thread which includes some old Cincinnati Enquirer articles that discuss the options the Reds had available when they were looking to replace Riverfront Stadium. There are some excellent points made on the pros and cons of a neighborhood stadium vs. a waterfront stadium.

Some graphics depicting the Broadway Commons site.
The guy who did this Broadway Commons concept also developed something called Armour Field in Chicago. Jon you probably know something about this. It looks like the Polo Grounds in a way with short distances down the line and a huge center field which Yankee Stadium also had before the renovation in the mid 70s. Speaking of Yankee stadium, it amazing how close those two parks were to one another
